AN expert in PR revealed that Trisha Goddard may be the way forward to save The Jeremy Kyle Show.
In a shocking turn of events ITV have confirmed The Jeremy Kyle Show has been permanently removed from air following the death of a participant.
The channel released a statement this morning which read: “Given the gravity of recent events we have decided to end production of The Jeremy Kyle Show.”
“The Jeremy Kyle Show has had a loyal audience and has been made by a dedicated production team for 14 years, but now is the right time for the show to end.”
“Everyone at ITV’s thoughts and sympathies are with the family and friends of Steve Dymond”.
The previously announced review of the episode of the show is underway and will continue.”
Adding: “ITV will continue to work with Jeremy Kyle on other projects.”
Fans have been speculating that Trisha Goddard is set to replace The Jeremy Kyle Show after she appeared on Good Morning Britain this week talking about the struggle she has faced with her daughter and addiction.
Daily Star Online spoke to a PR expert who gave her thoughts on whether Trisha could be the successor of The Jeremy Kyle Show.
Rochelle White, the director of Rochelle White PR agency, told how Trisha Goddard could be a great fit to replace the axed show: “My first thought was Trisha as back when the showed originally aired, it tackled real life issues and dramas.”
“I think that it could be a good and smart move for ITV and would sit well with the daytime program schedule. Trisha could add a great level of diversity, topics and subjects to morning TV and could lead change in a positive way.”
As well as this, Rochelle also explained that The Jeremy Kyle Show drama wouldn’t be enough to put viewers off: “I do think that there is hope for self-help shows. Instead of going for the typical drama-filled family issues, cheating partners etc there is 100% room for shows to help people with real problems or family drama”.
“If done right, these shows can be not only good viewing, but can help people. If you look at sections on This Morning and Long Lost Families certain subjects can help and inspire others”.
Although ITV announced the removal of the show to the public, host Jeremy Kyle has not yet offered a statement to he public in regards to the axing, Rochelle also added that this may have been a big error for the reality show star.
“I feel it could have been handled better. A bit more clarity from ITV and Jeremy himself could have helped soften the blow. As the major thing that was taken from this was the death, not really the circumstances that surround it. It is only coming to light now”.
